What’s the future for Sports Tonight?
Since network cuts by Lachlan Murdoch there has been much speculation, not helped by the network’s moves away from sport on ONE and a decision to exit AFL after this season.
Many observers expect the programme to end once the AFL season is over.
Officially, the network hasn’t made any statement about Sports Tonight.
Yesterday a TEN spokesperson told TV Tonight, “We’ll have more to say about shows over the next few weeks.”
But on the weekend Sports Tonight senior reporter Paul Cochrane appeared to have already tweeted the outcome:
#videohits is ending with Coldplay’s “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.” What should we use 2 sign off @sportstonight1 in October?
For the record, Video Hits was a show TEN denied had been axed on July 4th, but was confirmed as axed on July 5th.
TEN’s 2012 Programming Launch is being held next week.
